No, the table in Tiffins does not fold down. With the non-folding chairs under it, there's not much room to use the space for anything else. There is a full bank of cabinets under the table and on either side. The left side is a pull out tray for a laptop with a pull out shelf below for a printer. There is also an electric outlet under the cabinet for the printer and laptop.

Our table had two leafs and two extra folding chairs. Occasionally one of our grandchildren would put an air mattress under the table and drape a sheet or blanket over the table to make himself his own little fort. He loved it! You don't need to have a removable table to make a bed under it - especially for a child or teen or someone who can still get down on their knees!!

The table doesn't fold down, it's cantilevered over the floor. The two standing chairs fit there nicely, and when you need more table it pulls out a little further (still with no legs).

When I said put a camp bed there, my thoughts were to just move the standing chairs elsewhere and put a camp bed under the table. If you were an adult you could sleep with your head to the passenger side so if you sat up you didn't hit your noggin.

I personally feel like the space is much more versatile with the table and chairs and it makes the living are feel much more open. You can still seat people there, but you're not squishing into a booth, you can use it as a desk, there's a decent amount of storage with the cabinetry. Both my husband and I really like it (he actually liked our old booth, I am in the very anti booth category).

OK one more silly question. What do you do with the free standing chairs when driving down the road? It seems to me they would need to be secured in some way.

I simply put a long bungee cord around both chairs in the seat area so they are tied together. I've never had them fall even with a couple of fairly fast stops. Our friend's new Fleetwood came with straps to tie their chairs to the floor, but we've never had a problem with ours.

I don't think that's silly.

Lots of people will tell you they leave them and they're fine. I'm sure they are correct. Yet because I have children, I have a no potential projectile rule in place. I will put them in the back bedroom and close the door, or stow them wherever they will fit outside of the main cabin. I also clear everything off the counter and stow it.

While I understand that in the case of an accident severe enough to make the chair flying an issue, that we will probably have bigger problems, I am more comfortable with no possible projectiles in the vehicle, both RV and car.
